We arrived in the evening, expecting a warm welcome, clean rooms & a hot meal. We stood, in a dark, dirty street for over an hour, banging on the door, unable to gain access to the Riad. There was no answer on the telephone and eventually, our driver took us to stay somewhere else. We had paid in advance for 3 nights, half board and I am reclaiming this amount from Thomas Cook. Very disappointed - do NOT book this Riad!!!

Room Tip: Can't comment as we never got to see them!

We enjoyed four nights at Riad Bahja and found the staff, Omar and Rashida to be most helpful, polite and pleasant at all times. Rafik upgraded us to a suite because we were the only guests in the riad for our stay. Very tradional riad in authentic Morrocan style. The only downside was the walk from the mosque to reach the riad. It was only a five minute walk but through very narrow passageways in not very pleasant surrroundings. Luckily our taxi driver escorted us to the riad as it would have been very difficult to find on first arrival with suitcases.

We booked our weeks holiday through LastMinute.com to stay at the Riad Bahja, flying EasyJet with airport transfers. On arrival there were lots of people with signs waiting to meet their guests and whisk them off to their hotels or
Riads. Ours was nowhere to be seen. We asked a very helpful driver from another Riad who phoned ours, to find they didn't have us booked for a transfer. On arrival at the Riad the manger said that this was our fault - a theme that continued throughout the holiday.

A lot of reviews say that the Riad is hard to find, especially as the drivers can't drop you very close. When we were dropped off the car was quickly surrounded by locals pulling our bags into a cart and we were led through the melee down some very dark alleys. However, once you get the know the location, it's not quite so daunting. I'm sure we'd have felt better had we been collected from the airport as we paid for.

The Riad itself is lovely, a real oasis amongst the chaos outside. The owner (who transpired to be only the Manager), comes across as extraordinarily helpful. He isn't. Our first morning at breakfast we ate whilst a Moroccan travel agent shouted at us, repeatedly suggesting we hadn't read our paperwork and didn't know who we had booked our holiday through. He was adamant we hadn't booked through Lastminute and took great offense when we disagreed with him. Breakfast was rather awkward. The Riad manager did not intervene. It was clearly outlined that the absence of a transfer was our fault for not reading the paperwork / not reading signs in the airport / not knowing who we had booked our holiday with. I understand some Arabic and his language was not polite.

The other staff in the Riad are brilliant - Omar and the lovely lady who cleans the rooms. The Manager lets the whole place down. You don't get a key, instead you will be assured that someone will always answer the door. We started to doubt this on the first night when we returned after an early meal to get no response to increasingly louder knocks. It's not the nicest place to stand outside at 11pm. A fellow guest thankfully let us in, however when we mentioned this at breakfast the manager said this could not have been possible and was evidently our fault. An so it was the second evening when yet again we couldn't get a response to our knocks. The third or perhaps fourth evening of this we went to a lovely neighboring Riad and had them call the manager. Apparently he was in all along and it was our fault...

The room was lovely, but 6 inch gaps around the door mean there is a distinct lack of privacy. You can hear everything going on outside the door, and they can hear you too. So much for our romantic holiday!

Breakfast finishes at 10am. Remember that, because the manager won't tell you, but if you miss it then he will tell you how much overtime he had to pay his staff to sit around waiting for you to get yourself out of bed. You'll hear the arrival of breakfast crockery and furniture movement through the 6 inch gaps around the door anyway, with pointed coughs and pointed knocks on your door to reinforce the noise.

The Manager will try and make as much money out of you as possible through day trips. We didn't bite, much to his annoyance. What could be a fabulous Riad is spoilt by his attitude. We are seasoned and respectful travelers who wanted to enjoy and experience the City. Maison Arabe just down the road became our much needed retreat with wonderful staff. Stay there instead if you can afford it!

We would recommend staying in a Riad, they are beautiful and grand retreats where you can authentically and individually experience Marrakesh. Just don't stay in Riad Bahja.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else and enjoy the amazing city....

The Riad was set right in the centre of the old city walls so everything was in easy walking distance. Rafik, the owner, made us feel very welcome straight away and had gone to a great deal of trouble to arrange all the excursions we wanted to undertake during our stay. The rest of the staff were friendly and courteous and helped mae our stay memorable. The Riad itself was comfortable, quiet, clean and it really did feel like you were staying as one of the family. They made mint tea for us whenever we wanted, they sorted out any slight problems quickly and gave good advice about how to stay safe and enjoy our visit. We also learnt a lot about the culture. Loved every single minute and would definitely return.

This was our first time in Morrocco and we decided to opt for the Riad experience having read various reviews on Tripadvisor. We arrived at about 10pm, the closest the taxi can get is to the mosque which is about a 3 or 4 minute walk away. The area is inhabited by the locals and it is full of tiny shops selling anything from sweets to fresh meat and poultry. It is extremely busy with motorbikes, cars, pedestrians and donkeys travelling in both directions. The riad was down a dark alley and at first we thought that we were very dubious and were reluctant to follow a local man who offered to lead us to the Riad from the taxi. However another local standing in the alley noticed our apprehension and confirmed that we were being lead to the Riad Bahja.

Omar opened the door after a couple of minutes of waiting and we entered the courtyard and met Rafiq, the owner. It was fairly dark, our party of three adults and two young children were told by rafiq that the he was only told about the suite for two adults and one child! So we all ended up bunking the suite. Rafiq was very helpful and arranged for an extra double bed in the Suite. The other room became available on our third and final night. The rooms were large and beautiful. They were very morrocon in decor with rose petals scattered over the beds and in the bathroom. However, for Decemeber they were cold and the shower was a warm trickle but it did the job!

Breakfast in the courtyard fresh orange juice, tea/coffee, croissants, yoghurts and the morrocon crumpet style panckaes. Although rafiq and Omar were lovely and very helpful one couldnt help but feel reluctant to make specific requests it felt as though we were causing inconvenience. The Riad was very intimate unlike a hotel where you meet many guests at breakfasts, here, we were the only ones.

The room was always cleaned by Rashida and fresh rose petals scattered. Rafiq arranged a for a driver to take us to the Atlas mountains and to the airport. His drivers were punctual and very reliable. I asked rafiq about certain spices and he went out of his way to get them for me. On our departure he gave us a box of delicious morrocon pastries.

The Riad was very pretty but for a family with children i dont think it was very appropriate. If i was a lone female travelling with friends i'd reluctant to stay here due to its very location.
